I am sore. Not the most sore I’ve ever been in my life, but sore for sure. Today is a run day, and when I woke up I didn’t feel it too much. I went for my run, came home and stretched and iced my shin.
I did end up buying a resuable ice pack from Wal-Green’s on Wednesday. It actually came in this little pouch with a strap, so I can strap it to my shin. It makes me think back to the days when I would see athletes at my university leaving the training room and walking around campus with ice on their shins/knees/elbows etc. Now I’m hardcore like them. ha. just kidding.
Time: 29 Minutes
Pace: 14.5 min/mil
Distance: 2 miles
Weather: 40 degrees.
This run felt great at the start. I did the same run/walk interval, 3 minutes to 1 minute. At the middle of the 5th run interval I was feeling it in my legs…and overall tiredness…not specific shin pain. I am going to attribute this to kettlebells.
I’m enjoying this run/walk and look forward to continuing my training this way.
I think I’m heading to the gym tonight with my husband and I will NOT be lifting. I’m thinking a nice stat bike ride and some quality time with the foam rollers.
